sell my conroe x6800 for a e6700 - Page 2

post #11 of 13
Ya I don't see anything wrong with the 6700 on air, you could clock it quite nicely like thumper said. Once I sell my 6400 to my cousin, I'll probably move my 6600 and BT to rig2, then I'll get a 6700 and a Tuniq Tower. Or a better cooler, if there'e one out by then. Either that or I'll get another 6600.

Either way it would be very close, if not the same, on performance. Just depends on the specific chip you get of course, and how well it clocks. 6600 is a much better value of course though. Unless the 6700 price comes down at least a little when I'm ready, I'll probably go 6600.

I was wrong, just completed a 24hour test at 3.05Ghz and 1.18v and load temps are 49c.....man this heatsink is garbage. I still maintain that I could get a 1Ghz overclock on air with this system if I had a better heatsink, something like a Tuniq Tower or Infinity.....

I would say that the 6600 is a good deal as the difference between a x9 and x10 multi isn't worth $300.....I got a great deal on my 6700 (less than 6600 retail price) so I didn't see why not.

My 6700 is performing quite nicely on air at the moment, and it's not even really good air. 3Ghz @1.15v 44c load with a 22c ambient. I expect to hit 3.5Ghz before this terirble heatsink stops me from temps and stil have pleanty of room in voltage to go higher with better air, or in my case, custom water.
The method of cooling makes a huge difference in its overclocking limits. If your on a 975x mobo that doesnt overclock much over 450fsb that limits your maximum reach to 4ghz with a 6600 and 4.5ghz with a 6700. Thats a half a ghz difference and enough to warrant the price difference between the 2 cpus and the price difference is more like $215 now that prices have settled down.

I echo the statement made by Wankerfx as being accurate.
